Multimodality Live Webinar | July 13, 2021, 19:00 (CET) / 13:00 (EST)

Post-COVID Conditions Webinar

Post-COVID conditions are a wide range of new, returning, or ongoing health problems people can experience more than four weeks after first being infected with the virus that causes COVID-19.*
Hear from our global panel of physicians who are shedding light on how they are diagnosing and treating post-COVID conditions in their respective clinical field by using different modalities. Learn how our panellists are managing post-COVID conditions, and their patients with these symptoms.

EXTENSIVE INFORMATION ON SPEAKER AND HIS PRESENTATION

Moderator: Prof. Joao A C Lima, M.B.A., MD
Professor of Medicine, Director of Cardiovascular Imaging
Johns Hopkins University
Baltimore, USA

Dr. Joao Lima is a professor of medicine, radiology and epidemiology at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. His pioneering work in cardiac imaging using advanced MRI, CT and echocardiography has led to non-invasive techniques for predicting cardiovascular disease and calculating its extent, as well as measuring the effectiveness of modern cardiac treatments. He holds numerous patents on devices and methods for cardiac imaging and image-guided therapies.

Dr. Lima graduated medical school at the University of Bahia, Brazil. He completed his cardiology fellowship at Johns Hopkins and spent two years on the faculty of the University of Pennsylvania before returning to Hopkins as a faculty member in 1992. A long-time investigator with the Multi-Ethnic Study of Atherosclerosis (MESA), Dr. Lima is credited with more than 175 articles out of that study and nearly 575 publications over his career. He is associate editor of Journal of the American College of Cardiology and serves on the editorial board of the Italian Journal of Cardiology while reviewing for other journals including the New England Journal of Medicine, Circulation and Annals of Internal Medicine. Dr. Lima has been invited to present his research throughout the Americas.

Speaker: Prof. Mickaël Ohana, MD, PhD
Consultant Radiologist
Strasbourg University Hospital
Strasbourg, France

Prof. Ohana is a Professor in Radiology at the University Hospital in Strasbourg and he is specialized in non-invasive cardiovascular imaging and chest imaging.

Presentation title: Follow-up of lung parenchyma after COVID-19: role of chest CT
Long-term outcome after COVID-19 infection is still largely unknown, and might affect multiple organs. Lungs are the first and most concerned, and while post-COVID-19 fibrosis is a definite reality, its incidence is still highly debated, as is the screening for this condition. In this short and comprehensive presentation, we will discuss the essential role of chest CT in this indication.

Speaker: Dr. Yoko Kato, MD, PhD
Post-doctoral Fellow Cardiovascular Imaging
Johns Hopkins School of Medicine
Baltimore, USA

Dr. Kato is a cardiologist who graduated from Tokyo Medical and Dental University (TMDU) in 2005. After two years of residency training, she started her career as a cardiologist and later became a coronary interventionist by training. Her initial interest was to achieve an image-guided safe and efficient intervention procedure. Dr. Kato switched her career to cardiac imaging in 2015 and was trained as a reader of cardiac MRI and CT clinical images at Cardiovascular Imaging Clinic (CVIC). She received her PhD degree from the graduate school of TMDU in 2016 by a research of aortic MRI assessment of Takayasu arteritis. She joined Prof. Lima’s Lab at Johns Hopkins University (JHU) in 2017 as a research fellow. Her current interest is cardiac MRI assessment and MRI technical development of myocardial fibrosis, cardiac function, and coronary arteries.

Presentation title: Comprehensive Imaging Exam of Convalesced COVID-19 Patients
JHU started a study using CT and MR to evaluate COVID-19 sequalae. The study objective is to characterize the pathology in major human organ systems, including brain, myocardium, liver, and lung, using MRI and ultra-high-resolution -CT in patients with COVID-19 infection according to disease severity and risk factors.
Additional objective is to quantify the degree and extent of injury to the liver, lungs, brain, myocardium and vascular systems in survivors of severe COVID-19 infection who required hospitalization, when compared to controls matched by age, gender and ethnicity. This study results may facilitate measures to prevent, detect, and manage complications from COVID-19 infections.

Speaker: Prof. Leopoldo Pérez de Isla, MD, PhD, FESC
Cardiologist. Head of section. Cardiovascular Imaging Unit
Associate Professor at the Complutense University of Madrid
Clínico San Carlos, Complutense University of Madrid
Madrid, Spain

Prof. Pérez de Isla is accredited as a specialist in advanced echocardiography by the Spanish Society of Cardiology and the European Society of Cardiology.
He has a lot of experience with COVID-19 patients since Madrid was a hotspot during the Pandemic.

Presentation title: What is the role of echocardiography after recovery from COVID-19
In this presentation we will try to show the main applications of echo cardiograph after COVID-19 based on real life experience.

Speaker: Prof. Laurent Feldman, MD, PhD.
Professor of Cardiology
Director of the Catheterization Laboratory
Bichat–Claude Bernard Hospital, University of Paris
Paris, France

Prof. Laurent Feldman is a professor of Cardiology at Bichat Hospital (Paris University) and the director of the coronary cathlab. He did his cardiology internship in Paris, then spent four years doing experimental research in vascular biology at Tufts University in Boston and at INSERM in Paris. He has been working at the cardiology department of Bichat Hospital since 1998. His field of expertise is coronary interventions and he is very much involved in teaching and tracking innovations and implementing them in daily practice.

Presentation title: Leading dose solutions for interventions
